Tomato-Basil Simmer Sauce


I tried my first batch of canning!! So I had to share this delicious recipe. I had to research some directions and terms as in non-reactive pot. These are nonmetallic pots used for high acid foods so the natural substances in the foods don't react with the metal. This can contribute to to food becoming black, brown, gray in the jar or giving the sauce a different taste.
The above links will give you the recipe and some great facts. My motivation was when I found an article in the July Better Homes and Gardens along with a few other recipes.

I also wanted to share my excitment in winning the "no pattern paper" contest in my last post. I thought it was a challenge but was happy to hear it was a contest...yay!!

Sounds delicious. I've always been afraid to try canning because of the sterilizing and such involved.

Your layout in the previous post is fabulous. Something so precious about chubby fingers and toes. And the leaf canvases you made for your bathroom are great.

Best wishes for the rest of your week. :) Tammy
